SKM will work with Swiss temporary venue specialist Nussli, architect Wilkinson-Eyre and stadium specialists KSS Design Group to design a 12,000 capacity temporary demountable structure.
This will host the Olympic Basketball preliminaries competition and the Paralympic Wheelchair Basketball and Wheelchair Rugby competitions.
Olympic Delivery Authority chief adviser on architecture and urbanism Ricky Burdett said: “Temporary structures of the scale and impact of the Basketball Arena need to be designed with elegance, simplicity and intelligence.
"The design team were selected for their ability to integrate structural integrity with architectural expression, backed up with experience, capacity, creativity and a deep understanding of the complex brief. The design team is committed to delivering an attractive and flexible venue for spectators and competitors, on time and on budget.”
